Police say the altercation began a few days ago when a local Hindu boy was accused of allegedly desecrating a madrassa, according to the Associated Press. According to the AP, local police officer Asif Raza said that locals had blocked the road before the attack on Wednesday. According to police, the reason was the decision of a local court in which an 8-year-old Hindu boy was released on bail on charges of desecrating a madrassa.
